Ancon has launched an animation video, detailing the benefits of its new KSN Anchor System, which offers a safer and easier alternative to traditional re-bend continuity systems.
The animation offers a step-by-step guide to installation, demonstrating how KSN Anchors can simplify core-to-slab connections in multi-storey concrete frames.
By presenting the benefits of the system, the video aims to evaluate the limitations of traditional re-bend continuity systems, to which the Ancon KSN Anchor System offers a safer alternative.
The KSN Anchor System includes internally-threaded anchors, which are cast into the wall. The anchors have been designed to accept continuation bars, which have been prepared with a Bartec parallel-thread, during construction of the adjoining slab.
The system can accommodate a range of bar lengths, including EC2 lap lengths.
A standard timber carrier enables users to install multiple anchors simultaneously. The system offers design flexibility, unlike re-bend systems, where bar length, spacing and diameter are restricted by physical box dimensions.
The anchors were exposed to a wide-ranging test programme, which included a comprehensive audit of Ancon’s production facilities. The construction joints were subject to heavy loading and evaluated in terms of performance.
Following the tests, the system was awarded UK CARES Technical Approval TA1-B.
